Ever wonder why you can’t seem to stick to the habits that you want to create?
When Nines resolve to make big, sudden habit changes, they set themselves up for failure. Their brains aren’t wired to sustain that kind of change.
Here‘s why, and what to do instead.
When we choose new habits that are too far off from our current habits, it feels like too much of a disruption to our state of peace.
Our brains like comfort and familiarity more than they like making positive changes. When you tell it about a big change, it goes into fear mode.
Here’s what to do:
Think of the very minimum amount of change that you know that your brain won’t reject doing when it comes time to doing it.
Commit to doing only that consistently for 21 days.
Once that habit has been established, start slowly adding more minutes/ reps/words, etc.
But only add an amount that your brain won’t fight against.
Consistent BABY STEPS is what we’re after.
Trust is a Must
Transformation cannot happen when you are not used to keeping promises with yourself.
So only make promises that you 100% know that you will be able to keep. This establishes trust in yourself.
Trust is a must.
Every time you keep a promise to yourself, be sure to acknowledge it and celebrate it! You need to rewire your brain to believe that you are a person who knows how to keep promises to yourself.
You will be amazed at what happens after even a few month’s time.
